As part of our work engaging and collaborating with Muslim community, staff recently had the opportunity to learn more about supporting Muslim families through Islamic-informed practice. Facilitated by Taskeen Mansur, a Psychotherapist, Registered Social Worker, and founder of Ummah Support Services this training session also featured other community partners, leaders, Imams, professors and social workers who shared their expertise.
Staff learned about the fundamentals of the Islamic faith and diversity within the Muslim community in Peel. The training featured discussion about how mental health, addiction, and trauma concerns affect the Muslim community, and considered an Islamic-oriented model of service.
We look forward to further partnerships and learning opportunities with Peel’s Muslim community.
